Built around a 6.5-inch high definition LCD screen, the Digital Photo Display is an elegantly-styled 'digital picture frame' that displays your snaps with unrivalled levels of sharpness, brightness and contrast courtesy of its high-density 133 pixels-per-inch display.</p><P>With the popularity of digital cameras booming and functionality spreading into other devices such as mobile phones, PDA's and webcams, it is possible to take snaps almost anytime and anywhere. But, what happens when those photos are taken? Research undertaken by Philips has discovered that over 80% of PC owners store snaps on their computer while less than 20% are ever printed out, so hardly any time is taken to enjoy and re-live those special moments. </p><P>The Philips Digital Photo Display remedies this and unlocks the potential of your digital snaps, allowing you to enjoy memories hidden away on a PC or left on a camera in print-quality on its crisp display - promising 88 per cent more pixels-per-inch than a 17-inch monitor. </p><P>The device connects to a PC or camera via USB and for added flexibility is equipped with a memory card slot (SD, MMC, Memory Stick and Compact Flash compatible) - ideal for non-PC owners.</P><P>Conveniently, the Digital Photo Display requires no installation and utilises unique software which compresses snaps, enabling 50 or more full-size photos to be stored on the internal memory. </P><P>Offering both horizontal and landscape viewing options, the Digital Photo Display detects if an image is not orientated correctly and automatically adjusts accordingly. Extremely versatile, photos can be displayed individually, in a slideshow or even in groups of thumbnails, with the latter providing a speedy facility for finding specific snaps. </P><P>The device can be set to show photos for a fixed period of time and can be programmed to turn on or off when required courtesy of the on/off timer facility. Significantly, to maximise the high definition capability of the screen and ensure photos are viewed in best-possible light, brightness levels are fully adjustable.</P><P>The stylish design incorporates a sliver and translucent frame that enhances the impact of on-screen images and ensures the Digital Photo Frame blends effortlessly into any home or office environment. </P><P>The Digital Photo Display will be available in October for around £170.”
